What laws should a society have? How should a society be organized and governed? At root, these are questions of justice and injustice. This course introduces students to different ways of thinking about the idea of justice in a political society and will explore important issues of justice and injustice that arise in contemporary political and legal systems. It explores issues and debates such as poverty and economic justice, responsibility for historical injustice, environmental justice, justice beyond borders, and questions of justice in law and policy in the case of minority and Indigenous groups.
